Founded in 1750, British heritage brand Swaine Adeney Brigg is an esteemed purveyor of luxury leather goods and has held royal warrants since the reign of King George III. Each briefcase is individually created in their workshop by a single craftsman using the finest hand-finished materials. Traditional English bridle leather, tanned with natural plant extracts embues each case with a richness that improves with maturity and hand-polished solid brass hardware adds the perfect finishing touch to these timeless and classic styles.

Details

Swaine Adeney made the original Bond case with its distinctive red skiver lining for James Bond 007 played by Sean Connery in the 1963 film "From Russia with Love". In the movie the case hid 20 rounds of ammunition and gold coins, plus the flat throwing knives used to dispatch villain Red Grant aboard the Orient Express. The case also usefully hid a 0.25 caliber AR7 folding rifle with infrared sight. (Used by Bond to shoot down the SPECTRE helicopter pilot who was dropping grenades on him at the end of the film.)

Fortunately, you don't need to be Sean Connery to own 007's attaché. Betty Hemmings offers a replica of this briefcase (minus the ammunition, knives and rifle). It's a must-have for collectors of James Bond memorabilia and 007 gadgets.

Swaine Adeney Brigg Attaché Cases & Umbrellas

London’s celebrated maker of leather goods and umbrellas since 1750.

Swaine Adeney Brigg has a reputation for manufacturing only the very finest attaché and business cases. Each piece is individually created in their Cambridge workshop by a single craftsman, employing only premium hand-finished materials. Using the finest English Bridle Hide, a leather master sculpts and hand-stitches each component of the case. The handle alone takes more than two hours to create, as it is made up of eight individual components which must be sewn together to ensure a robust handle that moulds itself to the hand. The case’s hardware and locks are cast of solid brass and hand-polished to a satin finish by a master metal worker, in order to retain the natural beauty and strength of the brass. Detail is everything, and time is never measured when creating these masterpieces. It is no wonder that Swaine Adeney was chosen to make the first iconic James Bond case for the film “From Russia with Love”. Fortunately, 007 status is not a prerequisite to owning one of these timeless pieces.
